Usually, when people go to the beach, they choose a sun protective lotion with a SPF (sun protective factor) of 20 to 30. While this was a good idea several years ago, the latest environmental changes and the damage of the ozone layer made the sun much more dangerous for your skin. This is why the lotions with SPF 50 are recommended these days.
You can also choose the natural sun protective lotions that will not affect the skin in any case. A SPF 50 sunscreen can offer increased protection to the sensitive and dried skin, and especially to the persons having a sensitive skin. People who have blonde or red hair are usually more exposed to those factors. The body lotions with a creamy aspect that are also invisible and have a low containment of fat are great, as they are easily absorbed by the skin, making its appliance enjoyable.
Along with the UVA and UVB filters, those creams contain strong anti oxidants derived from vitamins that will preserve the elasticity of the skin, fighting the free radicals at the same time.
Even if you are not a sea lover and you prefer to go to the mountains, you must know that this type of sun is even more dangerous. You won’t feel its hotness because of the low temperature, but it could burn your skin even more. This is why a SPV 50 cream is recommended.
Even when you are walking around the city in your car, the strong summer sun could damage the skin greatly. The SPF 50 cream is recommended for the whole summer season, whether you are going to the seaside, to the mountains, or you are only driving around the city. If you are also able to find a natural product of this kind, you are perfectly protected against skin cancers and other diseases.

There are literally thousands of beautiful flowers available to buy these days in garden centres and nurseries, but many of these are not native plants to the British Isle, and so do not always benefit the wild creatures that visit our gardens throughout the year.
Many gardeners are now recognising the need to provide spaces for native plants and creatures as the beautiful natural wild land around us gradually diminishes, and wild flower gardens are becoming increasingly popular. Wild flowers are diverse and also have the benefits of being hardy, robust plants that bloom for much of the year, and so can make a wonderful impact in your garden with some careful planting and planning.
Wild Flower Rules
Many countries have laws that protect the wild plants and creatures and it is illegal to up root wild flowers, so you cannot simply go out into the countryside and select your own plants. Instead you can buy many wild flower seeds and plants at garden centres and nurseries all round the country, or order them online from specialised websites. It is a good idea to do some research and find out which wild plants would feel at home in your garden, although many blooms such as honeysuckle, foxgloves and forget-me-nots will grow just about anywhere, and try and pick those plants that will support local wildlife such as bees, butterflies and birds.
When you are planning your wild flower garden it is important to think about the layout of the plants, trees and shrubs, and place them so that they create a haven that encourages wildlife into your garden. Birds love thick hedges and shrubs as they provide good shelter and protection from predators, and native trees such as hawthorn, oak, beech and willow birch are great for supporting a whole range of birds, insects and other animals.
Dense undergrowth also provides shelter for wildlife, so don’t plant too sparsely, or prune shrubs and trees back too much. There are many native and introduced plants that bear berries, nuts and seeds in autumn, and these are vital to supporting wildlife throughout the winter, so look out for shrubs such as cotoneaster, pyracantha, heather, lavender and ivy, as these all provide food for birds and animals in the colder seasons.
Here are few tips for computer users to make their computing environment green :
Only buy colour printers if you really need them, and try to avoid big fancy printers with lots of features, as these can use much more electricity than simple models, and can be expensive to fix if they go wrong. Only print off documents when absolutely necessary, and use recycled printer paper. You can buy recycled toner, but this is not always as eco-friendly and cheap as you might think, and can be very inferior to new cartridges (often leaking releasing the toxic ink chemicals), so really it makes sense to buy a good quality toner cartridge and use the printer less often.
RAM speed is what makes you computer perform quickly, and older computers that are very slow can often be revitalised by simply upgrading the RAM. This means you can use your old unit for longer, saving you from
having to throw away something that still works, and will also mean you can get things done quicker, so you spend less time at the computer and save electricity.
If you have a small monitor (that still works) and are thinking of upgrading to a larger screen, then consider using the F11 key first, which will give you a full screen view, (minus task and tool bars). This means that you will have a
larger view of what you are working on (hit F11 again to return to normal). Also if you are working in Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint you can magnify the page view to make words and numbers larger and easier to see.
Always switch your computer off when you have finished, and avoid leaving on ‘sleep’ or ‘standby’ to save electricity.
It is very important if you are running a business that you offer your customers a good range of easy payment options, as many sales will rely on the fact that the customer can choose the payment facility that suits them. In this day and age the vast majority of consumers rely on plastic cards to carry out their payments both online and for daily transactions in shops, stores and even restaurants, and so if you want to be competitive it is vital that you offer a secure plastic card processing option for your customers, whether you are running an online business or a regular bricks and mortar one.
Don’t forget that a relatively low percentage of online buyers will actually have an account with an online payment service such as PayPal, and although this is undoubtedly a cheap and easy way to offer secure payments through your website you could actually be losing out in the long run if you do not offer your customers any alternative secure ways to pay for their purchases.
